We’re Driving A 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid – What Do You Want To Know?

We’re spending the week in a 2022 Ford Maverick XL hybrid. It’s offered exclusively in Cactus Gray over a Black Onyx and Medium Dark Slate interior, with no standalone options offered. Previously, Ford Authority had a chance to drive the 2022 Ford Maverick XL featuring the Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine, and now, we’ve gotten our hands on the 2022 Ford Maverick XL hybrid to test out for ourselves.

2022 Ford Maverick

Starting MSRP for a base 2022 Ford Maverick XL Hybrid is $19,995. There are no optional extras on our Maverick, so accounting for the $1,495 delivery fee puts the overall cost of the pickup at $21,490.

2022 Ford Maverick

For readers who may be unaware, the Ford Maverick XL hybrid features The Blue Oval’s 2.5L hybrid powertrain, which is capable of up to 191 combined system horsepower and features Ford’s automatic CV transmission. It gets an estimated 42 miles per gallon under city driving, 33 miles per gallon on the highway, and 37 miles per gallon combined.

    Regarding your hybrid Maverick tester. I’m a big fan of the Maverick and it’s value for the money. Just wondering. If buying one for yourself. Would it be the high mileage rear wheel drive only hybrid or a 2.0 with all wheel drive. My concern is while currently owning a rear wheel drive V8 sedan living in the North East this rarely leaves the garage when it snows while using my wife’s Edge Sport. Awd is important but it’s only available with the 2.0 EcoBoost. I know snow will not be included in your test, but are rain slick roads an issue for the hybrid. I would appreciate your thoughts.

      I ordered mine in July last year, got it at end of December. Have about 9k miles, mostly highway. Mpg in the mid-30s. I stopped highway driving on 4.1. Now i get high 40s/low 50s around town. Lots of headroom, fairly comfortable, back seat peons gave enough legroom.
      No regrets. I like it.

    Two questions on the Maverick Hybrid;
    1) How will getting on the highway with a cold 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine affect long term reliability?
    2) How accurate will cruise control maintain its speed on hilly roads and highways?

      The cold engine on a highway will not be any issue because the electric motor is the main propulsion , not the gas engine. It will run as a generator and a power assis as it does in other Ford hybrids

        I totally agree with JMS. It took 9 months to get my Hybrid Lariat but well worth the wait. The Rapid Red is gorgeous. I am retired so I don’t drive a lot but enough to know the hybrid is well worth it. I have had it 3 months now and just now need to get gas. My MPH is still about 35.8 but a lot better than my Edge was at 20MPH. Mine has all the bells and whistles so that might be the reason the MPH is not higher. Definitely join the Maverick Club. I learned a lot and it helped me get through the wait.

      The XL doesn’t have cruise control. We have the XLT, which does. (Ordered 6/12, delivered 3/17) We live in Vermont, so sure have driven on hilly roads and interstate, and it performs great! We find the front seats very comfy, it’s lots quieter than our 2016 Mini Cooper, and it frequently gets gas mileage in the 60s! The truck bed is so versatile and useful. We absolutely love this truck. The loooong wait was super frustrating (got stuck at chip hold too), but once we had our truck we hardly thought about it anymore. Hang in there, folks, it’s definitely worth it!! Pop over to the Maverick Truck Club for information and camaraderie while waiting. It helps.

      The Maverick hybrid uses the HF45, which I believe shares any component from the HF35.

    My only question is if ford accidentally sent that to you for testing, instead of to my dealer 🤣 that’s exactly what I ordered. Cactus gray XL, only options I got were the full size spare, all season floor mats, and drop in bed liner. Getting frustrated that my October order still doesn’t have a build date.

    Can you please let us know if tall (e.g. 6’7”) people can fit in the driver’s seat? My oversized son can drive our Subaru Forester (which we had to buy without a sunroof to make it work). I’d like a hybrid to help him save gas. Please try the fit for a bunch of tall people and post the results. Thank you.

        I am 6’5″ and 235 lbs. I have 2 Mavericks. One is an XLT AWD FX4 with a sunroof and Ecoboost and the other is a Lariat Lux FWD with Ecoboost. I fit very comfortably in both of them and have had 5 adults in them both and no one has complained about lack of comfort in either the front or rear. We love them both. I am averaging just shy of 30mpg in city driving and when we took the XLT for a 250 mile trip I averaged 34.2mpg.

        Not correct. You can get a spray-in bedliner and CP360 on an XL. Both as constrained items however and are likely to delay your build. I would not order the SIBL but instead have it done locally with someone like Line-X or Rhino-Liners. As for the CP360, you will have to order your truck with it and last I checked that woould add about $560 to your order. It cannot be installed later so if you want it, you best order it with the truck.

    One question I haven’t seen answered. What is the height of the Hybrid version at the front of the hood, the middle of the hood, and at the cowl? I have a single car garage measuring 222″ leaving me with 20-22 inches, with little room to spare for a workbench and would like to raise it up to have no possible contact with the vehicle. Seems since I haven’t even seen a Maverick in the wild and won’t likely be getting one until 2023, I could use that time to make some adjustments and gut the garage to make room.

      I have a Lariat Hybrid (not sure if that makes a dif) so 43 1/2 inches should do the job with maybe 1/2 to one inch to spare. might be good to get several measurements from other owners. not sure if all trims have same tires, etc. Got about 1400 miles and loving it so far. Getting 36 to 37 mpg Av. Drove into town other day, ran around some and on my return noticed I got over 40 mph for that trip. That would have been 14 mph in my Chevy LTZ. Probably save me $10 ca-ching!

      Rich, All I can recommend is to be patient. My order was placed one week after yours (lariat, lux, 360). It may be we’ll get ours this fall as a 2023 model. Ford has stated that those who receive a 2023, will not be hit with a price increase. I refuse to pay a dealer anything over sticker. I did see where another person who had an early October order received a build date. We are getting closer.

      Rich, I had called pretty much every dealer in Central and North Florida looking for a Maverick the last 2 months. Looked at quite a few. One dealer wanted $30K over MSRP. I had decided that I would just have to wait till August and order one and get it next Spring if lucky.
      One of the sales people I had checked with was a young lady named Taylor Lucas at my local dealer, Gary Yeomans Ford of Ocala. Taylor called me 3 weeks ago and had one that was ordered a year ago and the customer had declined it. It was a XLT Ecoboost AWD FX4 in Carbonized Gray. The dealer wanted $45K. I worked them down to $3K over MRSP. I figured that with at least 8% inflation the 2023’s would cost at least that much more and the interest rates on any financing will be double by next Spring too. I brought it home and my wife loved it so much that she decided she would keep it for herself and I once again figured that I would order a 2023 since I really wanted a Lariat Lux Ecoboost anyway. After 45 years of marriage I have learned, happy wife, happy life.
      Last week Taylor called from the dealership again. She had a Lariat Lux in Carbonized Gray with Ecoboost that someone had traded in with 1100 miles on it. I rushed right down and once again they were asking $45k. Once again I told them I would give them $3k over the original MRSP and they finally agreed when I reminded them it was the last day of the month and know how these big dealers like to get their sales numbers up at the end of the month. Brought it home last week.
      Moral of the story is that those of you who have given up on looking and are tired of seeing those high “market adjustment” fees don’t give up. It never hurts to make a low ball offer as the worst they can say is no. Always be willing to walk away and have your credit and/or cash ready to go.
      We love both of these trucks and my wife is averaging 26.2 mpg city after 2k miles of driving with the XLT Ecoboost and I am averaging Just shy of 30mpg in my Lariat LuxEcoboost.

    I want an honest, and instrument tested, assessment of the noise level in the cabin at interstate speeds.
    I’ve heard other reviews that alternately claim it’s “fine” to it’s “noisy” because it’s a cheap vehicle.
    I’m not expecting a Lincoln, but I’d like to know if it sounds like an old Yugo at 70mph.

      My hybrid lariat lux is quieter than my 2019 Tiguan that I had before. I also have the soundproofing windshield in the Lariat though. My only complaint with the hybrid is that the ride is really rough. I can feel every bump in the road. The ecoboost with fx4 is apparently better because of the improved suspension.

    Why everyone thinks these are so greaat when the seats are so uncomfortable. The gauges look like something from 2003, then there’s the reports of the thin cheap paint. Oh I wanted to love it, but no. I think they’ll be plentiful and cheap on the used market in 3-5 years.

      You must be talking about the base model. For 20k it’s pretty damn good. I have a Lariat with the “leather” seats and they’re extremely comfortable. My lariat also comes with a huge screen where the tachometer is, and it’s animated and has tons of info. Those screens only come on the fx4 and lariat package though.

        Actually, you can manually move the wipers out of the parked position in order to lift them to clean the glass. In a really embarrassing moment at the pump, my wife pointed this out to me as I was trying to do the first windshield cleaning. Clean the windshield and manually move them back to park. I wonder if this procedure is in the owner’s manual. Now, where did I put the owner’s manual . . .?

      You would need to power-off in mid-cycle to ‘replace’ the wipers as their at-rest position is slightly under the hood and it would be difficult to reach them other wise. No need for just cleaning.

    I fell that some of these questions people are asking are clearly explained on all the info available on line from forums, and from Ford itself. First, hybrids come with a full size spare, only come front wheel drive, next, basic truck, good for a small local business, no feature comforts, such as cruise control, power mirrors, seats, etc. If this is going to be your only vehicle, then I suggest to upgrade to an LXT or Lariat. Equip the way you want, and still be under 28K out the door. (That includes all dealer fees, and taxes) My Lariat with Lux package HPR paint, Co-Pilot was $30785 in Florida

      Frank, I agree that many questions here are available by doing a basic reading of Ford documents. If I’m buying a new vehicle, I’ll find 45-60 minutes to read and visit UTube to learn as much as possible. Many are too lazy to do five minutes of reading. i.e., “does the Maverick come with a steering wheel, because I heard…”?

    You should pay sticker if it was ordered. If you find a new truck at a dealer they can and will sell at 4k to 5k over sticker. Some dealers are charging 10k over sticker. Ford has sent warning letters to some dealers who are charging excessive markups. Your order form will have the sell price on it.

    Ford has a huge issue, they made multiple popular vehicles that you can only buy at absurd prices. It’s hurting the brand to the point that people won’t look at any of them because they know they are way too expensive. That will stick long after this crisis is over. Also for a larger car company they sure can’t fill orders. Maverick bought today won’t be available until 2024. Crazy. I have given up looking for a Ford, whats the point.

        I would venture to say that EV owners, (at least the smart ones), will understand the range limitations of their batteries and not wander further from a recharge source than their battery will take them. Heading out into the desert with less than a adequate charge (or for that matter less than enough gas in the tank of an ICE vehicle), is just plain dumb. (I guess they could just drag a r-e-a-l-l-y long extension cord behind them connected back at the charge station?) 😀

    Reply

      Gas engine only running when needed to assist the electric or charge battery. Transition to and from is very smooth. No plug-in. The battery is relatively small when compared to an EV so not designed run auto with out gas motor except at lower speeds and short durations. Much of its charging is done when coasting or braking. Particularly with in-town driving.

      This is on the dealer, I’m afraid. I ordered XL Hybrid with few options other than the CoPilot 360 on August 25, 2021. My dealer put the order through immediately and gave Ford my contact info. Ford started sending me status e-mails beginning that day. Dealer also sent messages at each step. It still took 9 months before I got the truck on June 1, 2022, but I always knew where it was in the process. Until you are scheduled, you only hear from Ford or the dealer. When you are scheduled you receive a VIN and at that point you can follow Ford’s order tracking for more details. If your dealer sits on the information and doesn’t give Ford your contact details, then your only recourse is the dealer.

      The valid reason for the delays is two-fold. One is entirely Ford’s fault: they brought out the least expensive hybrid in the entire market and assumed no one would buy it because it didn’t have AWD or big horsepower. Oops, the orders exceeded their manufacturing capabilities. The other is supply lines for parts, which have been affecting the entire auto industry, both for mechanical stuff and for electronics. Shipping all that production offshore has turned into a disaster.

    I ordered my 2022 Ford Cactus Grey Hybrid Oct 9th 2021. (Almost 8 months ago)
    Picked it up a couple days ago on June 2nd. It’s worth the wait. Drives nice, XLT is well appointed. Awesome Cactus Grey color gets lots of envious looks.

    After just a couple days of driving I’m averaging approx (41-42mpg US Gal; 50-51 Cdn Gal) of combined city and hwy driving. My build is an XLT Trim with the CoPilot 360 and XLT Luxury Packages; added Sunroof and Rear Sliding window for the dog whom loves the back seating area.

    I really like the FWD setup of the Hybrid with the Engine weight on the Front Axles it doesn’t tend to loose traction in the Rain/Slick conditions like a RWD truck. I used to work at a Honda dealership on the Ridgeline pickup had similar benefits being FWD during regular driving conditions.

    SUMMARY – LOVE IT. WOULD BUY AGAIN

      I’ve only been driving my XL for a few days, but for me the peak fuel efficiency seems to hit in the 55 MPH area (which I think is true for most passenger cars, not sure about heavy trucks.) There are other factors that complicate this. Cruise control will certainly save fuel and adaptive cruise control is available on the XLT and Lariat but not on the plain XL. Your driving habits also make a big difference. Pushing for speed and trying to pass everything on the road will lower your mileage quite a lot. Setting a fixed pace and letting the speed demons pass you by will save gas. Taking your foot off the pedal and coasting when going downhill definitely saves, and you can see all this on the dashboard display.

      The trip computer is at 36.3 miles per gallon on my Maverick right now and that’s with about 130 miles in on mostly stop and go traffic.

    I get between 35 and 38mpg on the hwy. That is in Texas on interstate so a good steady 75 to 77mph…….that is just trying to “not get run-over”.

    I recently picked up my Maverick XL, and love it… the versatility, the mileage, the full package.
    I am having one issue…the radio reception is quite poor, having trouble getting radio stations (both AM and FM) that are 15 miles away. I’m only able to get stations with the very strongest signal, much different/worse than my other vehicles. Any suggestions? Thanks so much, very nice product

      You might ask the dealer to check that out. Of course radio reception depends on a lot of stuff: mountainous terrain, for instance, is a real blocker. I live in northern Illinois, which is not flat by any means but doesn’t have mountains. I’m in a rural area, so tall, steel-framed buildings are not an issue. AM reception is good in the XL with standard audio and will lock in stations out to 60 or 70 miles on a clear day with no thunderstorms. FM reception rarely reaches so far in any case, but with good weather conditions I get the big stations out to 50 miles or so and smaller ones out to 20 miles. What you say here suggests that you may have a problem with the little antenna on the roof or the connection to it.

    Ordered my Lariat Hybrid on Aug 27, 2021 and it built on May 25, 2022. Expecting delivery July 10-16. I have a C-Max now and get 42 MPG, but was told it would be 30-34. so I would expect the Maverick to run near 50 MPG. I still have not seen any Mavericks on the road in NJ, but Flemington dealer says they have delivered 4-5 so far???? I did get a request back in February from ford to take some options off and I could get it sooner—-No I said I will wait.

    Someone from Consumer Reports said that he was very worried about how the hybrid would tow because it is only front will drive. He was even concerned about a small boat. I currently have a small front wheel drive suv that has no problem pulling the boat and trailer out of the water. I would love to know how the Maverick handles a task like this because we have plans to try and buy one next year. Of course, I would also love to know as many details about MPG as possible.

    Just one question… My ordered Maverick is essentially the same as what you have, a Cactus Gray XL Hybrid with almost no options. Well… I do have the Co-Pilot 360 added as well as the internal power inverter. I ordered on October 25, 2021. I have no VIN number or scheduled production date yet. So here’s that question – When might I actually get my Maverick? OK… one more question… How did you get yours?

      Similar build to yours, XL hybrid., same options, velocity blue paint. Ordered Aug 25 last year, took nine months to delivery on June 1 this year.

      I ordered Oct. 15 carbonized gray XL Hybrid with Co-Pilot 360 and Rear Sliding window plus Tow Hitch. Almost to the point I hope it gets pushed to 2023 model. Got an email from Ford saying due to Co-Pilot constraints we will get back with you June please be patient, but nothing yet.

      Yes, they do. Or do you have a vehicle that only pulls one wheel?

    I have heard from a few owners that when detailing their Maverick, they discovered that the paint coating is very thin. Just wondering if you have any knowledge regarding the paint on the Maverick. Thanks.

    I have been waiting since Jan 30 for my Maverick. I hope it is delivered soon. It is a basic model. When do you think I can expect delivery?

    Does the Maverick XL hybrid have enough power for passing at highway speeds on uphill terrain?

      Yes it does, it’s not a Corvette, but it has plenty of power for passing.

      The Maverick hybrid feels pretty quick to me, and my daily driver is a 2017 Ford Fusion with the 2.5L I4. Additionally, the Maverick hybrid felt just as quick as the 2020 Ford Escape hybrid I sampled about a year and a half ago.

    I want to know when the heck will I get mine? It seems like regular customers are put on the sidelines while others get theirs. Like companies who buy a fleet of them, other countries, etc, etc. Plus, where and when did you get this and how? Plus when is Ford going to put a stop to dealers and their sky high markups? Price gouging in other words. They are going to cost you a lot of customers

      It all about the CHIPS, look around Allen Park, Mich, they have new cars and trucks sitting in parking lots waiting for chips. Thank God we sent that part over seas to get made. Look how much they’re saving.

    I test drove a Maverick Hybrid Pre-Production truck, the gas mileage was great, I didn’t think the ride was that good. Kind of bump.

    I hope you guys test how well the Maverick Hybrid can pull a full load up a fairly steep gravel road. Will it take too much weight off the front end and cause the front tires to spin?

    About the hybrid engine stopping and having to be towed to the dealer…I have read on Maverick sites that there is no warning when this happens. I love my Maverick.

    Seems like Ford is learning from Honda, Build just enough of something in the first few years to build demand so the problems, if any, can be worked out on a small number versus a colossal number. But anyway, considering the issues with the Powershift Focus trans, how likely is it that ford got it right with the CVT? Nissan never could, so how much better is the Ford?
